McQuade: You Can’t Have a Contract If One of the Parties to the Contract Has Never Heard About It

‘President Trump has just given ammunition to Stormy Daniels’ lawyer to make that argument’

EXCERPT:

McQUADE: "Absolutely right, Andrea. This is I think a great example of why it is lawyers always advise their clients not to talk about matters pending litigation in the public, because they might inadvertently say something that’s contrary to the position the lawyer wants to take. By saying to the press that he didn’t know about the payment, President Trump is basically saying he didn’t know about the agreement. It is sort of an existential argument but you can’t have a contract if one of the parties to the contract doesn’t know about it. That shows there’s never been a meeting of the minds and this is exactly what Stormy Daniels is asking for, a ruling that the contract is null and void. And so President Trump has just given ammunition to Stormy Daniels’ lawyer to make that argument."
